  1. So gorgeous and my two favorite colours together. The necklace is a standout!
  2. Beautiful.
  3. Three pence in puddings! We had to give them back too. These are great!
  4. These are great!
  5. He is wonderful. So happy, even though he is footless. Footloose? Footgoose.
  6. Thanks Pebble. I had never heard of Instone until Jean showed him here on CW. It's cool what we learn!! I was hoping you would confirm Instone for me Jean. Many thanks.
  7. Ta, Bonnie. I remembered them! Pixie found me Kyra to cheer me up. Thanks
  8. Lol Bijou. Thanks!
  9. Thanks for the links Bonnie. Had the second, not the first.
  10. Thanks Master for the comment. Thanks also Judy. I have seen some yellow niello....very cool. Hey thanks Bijou! Nice things:))
  11. Thanks Judy. The shell is similar although mine is bigger (brooch, not earrings I guess) but the pixie certainly looks the same moulding. I have a feeling my brooch is Instone, it's just I am relucta...
  12. I totally agree. The pleasure remains looking and pondering. I really love the way you have these displayed. Being a bit of a glassie I appreciate their beauty too.
  13. Very cool.
  14. Excuse my ignorance - an Albertina was a watch chain? Key chain?
  15. Gorgeous - the lilac is lovely!
  16. Lovely bottle. I like your bridge there Malkey. It clearly has a relationship to Sydney Harbour Bridge, and I believe the same contractors worked on them. Some say we copied yours; truth is I think o...
  17. Done. Go for it!
  18. Rose I have seen Radi's work before and yes, there are some similarities with some Japanese glass. I am still certain this is Japanese!
  19. Thanks Sean!
  20. See my comment to Peggy Ivonne. Styles are adopted and adapted,as you know! Thanks for the interest.
  21. Thanks Bonnie. Japanese art glass often follows their pottery styles.
  22. Very true Peggy. Even reading Ivonne's comment about the handles supports that. That's why we love glass I guess; everyone has their own take on a style.
  23. A true collector hey? Like that!! Thanks K :)
  24. Thanks Scott. ...always great to hear from you.
  25. I looked up Randy Strong and Orion and I can see where you are coming from Bob. Even his shapes are a bit Japanoise. Lovely works. Thanks for the comment and love!
  26. Thanks mate!
  27. I've often wondered how the US southern states feel about a white Christmas. Much as we do, but the white Christmas culture is probably more overbearing because of the not her states. Salad here for ...
  28. Love these Tash. I have the elephant, in 3 sizes - no idea about who, when, where!
  29. The contrast and bare but bright palette works fantastically!
  30. He's got good taste!
  31. Stunner indeed! Apart from the beautiful design and jewels, my eye keeps going to the little golden edge curls. The work is amazing.
  32. Gorgeous colours!
  33. They are so neat! A world tour in brass :)
  34. They are all great pieces of Australiana. Poor Tassie, off the map again! The shell is nice but I really love the ladybug.
  35. Cool find!
  36. I love the pastel colours of this one. So pretty.
  37. Lovely piece! I really like the depiction of the spider chrysanthemums.
  38. Mrs Thing is rockin' it!
  39. Gorgeous glass. I love that green, really unusual.
  40. Fantastic bracelet and great solve Jedi Bonnie!
  41. Very nice Betty. Who made it? (I'm useless {and lazy} about hallmarks)
  42. We differ here Rick - I really like green glass, but I'm glad this one won you over. As usual, thanks for an insightful response!
  43. Thanks Rick. This one sure isn't boring!
  44. Vibrant and zen - a great description. Thanks Bijou!
  45. Thanks for the thanks - just spreading the love of Japanese glass. It's a lovely, subtle piece; glad you like it!
  46. Lol Rick. My serious glass collecting started with Sccandinavian glass. Everything pared back and designed to be beautiful and exciting whilst appearing to be under-designed. I have moved a loooong w...
  47. That's exactly why I had to buy it Rick. Glad it tickled you too!
  48. Different to the other, just as nice. Looks almost like a form of candlewicking. If you have a local embroidery or crochet group they will likely be able to help. Or try a Facebook group like: Ha...
  49. It's wonderful stuff!
  50. Oh that' so nice!
